COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the British Empire expanded, English brewers added extra hops to keep beer fresh for increasingly long sea voyages. The beer on board the Mayflower shared this trait. Mayflower IPA puts a descendants twist on this style, with a powerful hop profile balanced by plenty of malt character. We use the freshest hops from the Pacific Northwest to give this beer its distinct, piney flavor and delightful, fruity aroma.

halfonit (1341) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2009
This pours a deep golden color with a nice head. Aroma is of hops, some floral, and a slight citrus. Taste is of hops, malts, and a little pine. Has a bitter aftertaste. Not a too bad IPA, but really nothing special.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2009
On cask at Neraxs event at Novare. Pours a golden hazy straw color with a distinct piney hop nose. Flavors are very clean, crisp, and typical over hopped delicious west coast style IPA. Theres a solid malt backbone at work here, but its all about the hops here. This was a nice little cask.

12oz bottle. Below average IPA though still quite drinkable. Not as hop heavy as I would have liked being more on the side of a pale ale.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2009
On tap at Bukowskis Tavern, Cambridge MA, September 2009. Nice clear amber colour. Quite soft IPA but pleasantly drinkable. Decent hops. Malt backing a bit lacking leading to a somewhat light mouthfeel.

Thin palate with some malts followed by bitter hops and citrus. Medium carbonation. Finish is same, smooth, light on bitter side with hints of lingering citrus.

asheft (3047) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2009
[bottle] Toasty caramel aroma with a nice dose of pine hops and a touch of grapefruit. Light chestnut under a clingy, white sheet. Potent pine and grapefruit hops flavour that is slightly salty, in front of toffee. Not complex, but very well done. Good amount of malt sweetness and subtle bitterness hold up the blast of hops flavour. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter grapefruit finish.

guzzler67 (1676) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Clear, deep amber appearance with a large, beige head and nice lacing. Resinous hop aroma with just a slight hint of caramel malt. Hops dominate, but do not overwhelm, the taste, with citrus, pine and floral flavors propped up by a strong malt backbone. Medium-bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel leading to as assertive, bitter finish. Well made.

Pours brassy copper with robust long lasting head with plenty of lace. Satisfying blend of conifer with a hint of burnt sugar. Aroma of fruit at the finish. A proud IPA.
